University of Michigan Hospital


Stress!  One of the largest public health problems that we have.

Because it's National Stress Awareness Day, 89.1 WEMU’s Lisa Barry spoke with Dr. Elissa Patterson, who practices and teaches clinical psychology at the University of Michigan Hospital, also known as Michigan Medicine, about how stress can affect us.

Candidates for Ann Arbor’s 5th Ward debated at the city’s Community Television Network studios last night.

Ann Arbor's St. Joseph Mercy and University of Michigan hospitals are partnering in a nationwide cancer prevention study, and they'd like to enroll at least 500 Ann Arbor residents to participate. 

John Stout is Oncology Services director at St. Joseph Mercy.  He says this is a great opportunity to take part in an important long-term study.

Stout says to take part in the study you must be between the ages of 30 and 65 and never have been diagnosed with cancer.
